"The Gods will always smile upon brave Women"
Ending, for a few entries about the Vikings, I decided to end this triptic (What is it you wish to ask the gods?, When you get frenzy, the thing about Berserkers and Lagertha, the Shieldmaiden) something of a tribute to all the brave and warrior women.

        On the wave of Viking TV series popularity , broadcast on the History channel, great popularity has been won by the nordic adventurers and women warriors, so-called Shieldmaidens, the folklore and the mythology of the Nordic - a woman who had chosen to fight as a warrior.
